In this video from the Ohio State University, a new and innovative approach is being explored to use CO2 emissions to generate electricity by locking the gas underground.

Dr. Jeffrey Bielicki works with teams of researchers at the University of Minnesota, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and The Ohio State University to develop innovative ways to use geothermal heat to produce renewable energy. Their research has developed a new kind of geothermal power plant that will lock away unwanted carbon dioxide (CO2) underground—and use it as a tool to boost electric power generation.
